[movies]"NASA Helps Chilean Miners" Tops This Week at NASA
A team of four NASA experts journeyed to Chile to assist the Chilean government on everything from what the trapped miners should eat and drink to how they could best adapt to their cramped, prolonged confinement. Also, six the crew members of the next space shuttle mission, STS-133, dress rehearsed their launch at the Kennedy Space Center. Plus, Dryden gets the NAC, LCROSS breaks through with Popular Mechanics, and NASA "airs it out" in Albuquerque.

In this satellite image, what might be mistaken for smoke from a forest fire is actually a wide plume of ice crystals -- in other words, a cirrus cloud. This particular cloud seems to defy the conventional description of as thin, wispy, often curly clouds. Cirrus generally form at high altitudes (near 20,000 feet, or about 6 kilometers), where temperatures are cold and water vapor is usually scarcer than at lower altitudes...
